You may notice a slight gap between the safe
body and door or some play in the door. These
are normal features of the safe and do not

Using Your Safe
• Always lock your safe!
• Storage: Stamps, metals and other delicate
articles should be protected against humidity
released by the safe by storing them in air-tight
containers within the safe,
• Do not store pens in safe.

About Theft
Your Sentry safe is designed to provide
security for its contents. No safe is theft-proof;
that is, given the right tools and time any safe
can be opened. Opening a locked safe is a
matter of time, knowledge, skill and equipment. Sentry offers the following advice to
provide further security for your unit:
- Always keep your safe closed and locked
when not in use,
- Utilize the bolt-down feature described in this
- Conceal the safe, if possible,
- Install safe with hinge side away from the
wall and door opening next to the wall. This
makes prying the safe open difficult,
- Do not share the combination. Do not write
the combination on or near the safe,
- Do not tell anyone where the safe is located
(except in the event of a fire,)
- Do not place empty safe carton out with your
trash. Cut carton into pieces and discard.
in Case of Fire
Advise fire department of safe's location. Cool
safe with fine spray of water or CO ^ fire
extinguisher. Always cool safe before opening.

Dampness inside the safe is common due to the
high humidity content in insulation. Moisture
absorbing paper has been packed inside your
safe to help reduce dampness and should not
be removed. It is also recommended that you
leave the door open tor a few hours every week
to let moisture out. DO NOT LEAVE SAFE
UNATTENDED for security reasons. Remove
any damp items inside safe and dry thoroughly
before returning to the safe.
Never store suede or leather produds in safe,
because they draw moisture into the safe.
